  • Muslim Professor Promoting Rape and Slavery at Georgetown University

    On Tuesday, February 7, 2017, if you were in an auditorium at Georgetown University, you would have heard something that should have made your skin crawl. A professor, Dr. Jonathan Brown, a Georgetown Professor of Islamic Studies, says slavery and non-consensual sex is just alright in the world of Islam. Mind you, he said this in SUPPORT of Islam. As in he’s actually fine with slavery and non-consensual sex (real rape), and is using Islam to shelter his beliefs. This man is teaching at Georgetown. Got that?

    This professor is indoctrinating, he is NOT educating. He is one of the useful idiots that are so necessary to foist a disgusting culture on young, impressionable, people…and they are swallowing it, hook, line, and sinker, because they don’t know any better and haven’t the guts or intelligence to do due diligence to find out the truth. He is teaching his students that men do not need consent to have sex with women, and that slavery is justifiable under Islamic teachings. Brown stated that slaves were “protected by Sharia,” omitting the various atrocities committed by slave-owners. Girls and women were forced into the sex trade and their male counterparts were often castrated.

    The history of slavery spans nearly every culture, nationality, and religion and from ancient times to the present day. However the social, economic, and legal positions of slaves were vastly different in different systems of slavery in different times and places. Although slavery is no longer legal anywhere in the world, human trafficking remains an international problem and an estimated 25-40 million people are living in illegal slavery today. The professor stated that “Consent isn’t necessary for lawful sex,” and defined consent as a Western concept. If “Western” translates to “civilized”, I will go on record as saying that “consent” is absolutely necessary, and if the woman says “No.”, that’s it. Although Slavery in Mauritania was criminalized in August 2007, in Mauritania it is estimated that up to 600,000 men, women and children, or 20% of the population, are currently enslaved, many of them used as bonded labor.

    Unfortunately, even hearing this said at a “prestigious” university isn’t shocking either. It seems to be part of a grand plan, using stealth jihad, to get the next generation(s) to accept something that is actually repugnant to them…if they would take the time and effort to think about it. In Sierra Leone in the 19th century about half of the population consisted of slaves. The Anti-Slavery Society estimated that there were 2,000,000 slaves in the early 1930s Ethiopia, out of an estimated population of between 8 and 16 million. Slavery in northern Nigeria was finally outlawed in 1936…but, wait a minute, isn’t that where Boko Haram kidnapped over 200 school girls and sold many of them into slavery? Yeah, I believe that’s the place. Elikia M’bokolo, April 1998, Le Monde diplomatique. Quote: “The African continent was bled of its human resources via all possible routes. Across the Sahara, through the Red Sea, from the Indian Ocean ports and across the Atlantic. At least ten centuries of slavery for the benefit of the Muslim countries (from the ninth to the nineteenth).” He continues: “Four million slaves exported via the Red Sea, another four million through the Swahili ports of the Indian Ocean, perhaps as many as nine million along the trans-Saharan caravan route, and eleven to twenty million, depending on the author, across the Atlantic Ocean”.

    It is plain to me that slavery still exists. It is also plain to me that Islamic-controlled countries are doing the bulk of enslaving the peoples. African states played a key role in the slave trade. Slavery was already a common practice among Sub Saharan Africans long before the involvement of the Arabs, and the Berbers. I believe it has grown under those groups. Selling captives or prisoners was common practice among Africans, Turks, Berbers and Arabs during that era. There has also been speculation that within Africa, females were most often captured as brides, with their male protectors being a “bycatch” who would have been killed if there had not been an export market for them.

    All in all, Professor Brown is presenting a horrible practice as something that is permissible. In my research, Islam was started by a pedophile warlord who wrote down things that he liked to do, and told his followers that those were the words of Allah. Because Islam condones very nearly everything that Western civilization abhors, it’s easy to gain converts…a good example is the conversion of many in prison. They recognize that, by claiming it’s their religion, they can commit heinous crimes and may get away with it, because it’s written in their holy book.

    Parting shot: I believe that Islam is a cult, not a religion. I would not trust any Muslim as far as I could throw a Buick. That makes me insensitive, hard-hearted, stupid…or whatever else you want to throw at me. It doesn’t mean anything to me. Anyone can follow whatever leader they want to, but don’t expect me to join in if it’s something so repulsive it harkens back to medieval torture processes.

    “Consent isn’t necessary for lawful sex,” Dr. Jonathan Brown

    Um, in any country with consent laws and statutes, yes it is necessary, otherwise the sex is against the law and therefore by definition not lawful. I would expect a professor to know that at least. However he does appear to have gone back on that statements above, judging from his Twitter (Tweet added below).

    He has a track record for courting controversy, including stating (I paraphrase) that the Qu'ran was better edited/verified by its early creators than the Bible was. Unless he is also an expert in early Christianity, which he does not appear to be, I would regard this as a gentleman talking outside his area of expertise to attract attention.
    "Islam as a faith and I as a person condemn slavery, rape and concubinage."

      I should add one update to this story from a week later. The Muslim students who were present were also not impressed and have publicly condemned him too. Perhaps his study of their faith was not as complete as he thought if he didn't realise he would cause this much offence.

      One of them documented the problems with the lecture, and his comments are in an article on the Christian Post.

        That's what is a little confusing about the Quran and Muslims. Either the Quran teaches what the Professor stated or not. And if it does, then there are either liberal non obedient Muslims or Muslims that actually follow its teaching. Why are Muslims that actually "DO" called extremist, that is, obedient Muslims? Either way, if these texts exists which the original article's comments showed, then either type of Muslim actually teaches the same ideology when they teach from the Quran. What type of religion does not DO as what holy book teaches? I see nothing in the article you shared Chatterbox that actually refutes what was quoted from the Quran by the Quran. That is, nothing from the book itself contradicts rape and sexual slavery.

        If someone could explain this to me like a four year old I'd greatly appreciate it:

        The Quran in Sura 23:5-6 says:

        5 [Most certainly true believers] . . . guard their private parts scrupulously, 6 except with regard to their wives and those who are legally in their possession, for in that case they shall not be blameworthy.

        God bless,

          Focusing on the Professor's speech, it is available online. In the text he doesn't quote the Qu'ran, so I'd suggest making that a new thread if you want to explore it. He focuses on the history of slavery, mainly in the US, while stating slaves were better treated under Islam than elsewhere (effectively claiming that slavery under Islamic rule was enlightened and acceptable while Western slavery was barbaric). The modern day Muslims are pointing out that this is not right, and that the examples of good treatment he gives are cherry-picked.

          The article I link below gives a link to the speech text ("Slavery and Islam – Part 1: The Problem of Slavery") and to Umar Lee's piece providing a Muslim view on the essay and questions the followed.
          A Georgetown University professor is denying allegations that he endorsed the practice of rape and slavery in Islamic cultures in a recent lecture, but critics claim he is being protected by a liberal establishment that is holding him to a different standa
